Defund the Honolulu Police Campaign Launch
October 11 @ 7:00 pm HSTFree
[Campaign is based on a program created by Sunrise Movement national, Dream Defenders, Critical Resistance, and Mijente]
Why defund the Honolulu Police Department?
$32 million in CARES Act money was given to the Honolulu Police Department. What did the HPD spend it on? $13.8 million in over-time, about $2 million on vehicles, $4.6 million in contract positions, and $118,102 for riot training tools. What does that do to address our current health and economic crises? Zero.
Honolulu residents are suffering too much and receiving too little to allow such negligent spending to continue. It’s time to defund the police and invest in our community. Join us this Sunday at 7PM for our “Defund the Honolulu Police Campaign Launch” to join our efforts and put taxpayer money where it actually belongs.
